Finish Twenty-Three

Tonight was Stitch Night but I came home from work with a migraine so I just popped in to see who was there and what everyone was working on. There weren't a lot of gals there but it was nice to see those that were. The Show & Tell table had lots of lovely finishes :o)

Speaking of finishes, I finally have another one to share! This is Hope Tea by Fiddlestitch Cottage -

Part of it has been done for months now but I was waiting on the wording. I wanted to personalize mine so I played around with it on Pattern Maker and I think I am pleased with the outcome. It may look a little strange and it might even look off center but trust me, it's not :o) I centered the wording as per the chart, not the teapot lid. I ended up frogging the year though because when I had centered that based on the chart it was off so I had to re-center it based on the "V" and the "I".

I have a bit of fun news to share :o) The writer that interviewed me for the Beyond breast cancer magazine contacted me again and wanted to interview me for Better Homes & Gardens! She is writing an article on the Do's and Don'ts, Breast Cancer Etiquette. So pick up a copy of the October 2007 issue when it comes out. I'll be holding autograph sessions this coming fall ;o)

Very nice teapot ! It doesn't look off center at all. Look forward to reading your interview.

Lili said...

Wow! Will you please send me a copy of the article?
And do you know the freebie called "breast cancer awareness ribbon mandala" by Ink Circles?
I don't have the link but I can send it to you if you like.
I love this teapot and the personalization, Cathey. Well done!
Take care!

I love your teapot piece, you did a very good job. I never noticed anything different...looked perfect to me.

I must pick up that magazine. I could use etiquette help with issues I'm not familiar with. When in doubt, I tend to zip my lip. Mostly.

Love your finished piece and how cool that you'll be in Better Homes and Gardens ;)

The teapot is pretty. I will look for the magazine. Hopefully I won't forget. Will that be coming out in Oct. or more like Aug. or Sept? said...

I'm pleased to see you're interested in cancer etiquette. I'm the author of "Cancer Etiquette: What to Say, What to Do When Someone You Know or Love Has Cancer" published by Lion Books.

Breast cancer was my 'double whammy.' The first whammy was multiple myeloma, an incurable cancer of the bone marrow.

I wrote cancer etiquette in the hopes that we can learn to be more careful when we speak to folks who have cancer. Our words and deeds have the power to heal or hurt.

good luck
